Thunderbird: quoted forwarding?

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by Nicolas Chevreux, Sep 8, 2004.

  1. Hello

    I have asked this in the Mozillazine forums, but in vain.

    Is there any way to configure (or install an extension) Thunderbird so
    that forwarded emails are quoted? This is an Eudora feature which I am
    dearly missing in TB.

    Mozilla Thunderbird-->Preferences-->Composition

    Forward Messages <inline>

    Now when you forward a message, the entire message appears in the
    composition window, replete with headers.

  3. Hello,

    Yes, this is what I am using, but not what I want to do.

    An example:

    I get a message whose body is:

    I would like it to appear as follow when forwarded:
    Any way to do this?

    I guess everyone has his/her own preference, but to be honest, I simply
    abhor it when I get a forwarded email that inserts the quote characters.
    Is there any particular reason you desire it? After all, it is fairly
    clear what portion of the email is being forwarded.

    Reading an email that's been quoted is not easy (at least for some).
    Even worse, many mail readers will mess up the formatting...

    When an agnostic dies, does he go to the "great perhaps"?

    Honestly, I hate when people use *any* sort of HTML or fonts, or
    graphics, in their emails. I think email (and USENET) should be
    exclusively plain text. I *love* the practice of inserting carrot
    characters ">" for quoted text. Then you can reply to specific portions
    of the email and it's clear who wrote what. I'm have a bit of trouble
    figuring out how to configure TB like this, too...
    I've never run into a mail client that has trouble with it....
